Thijs Verfaillie sits at the podcast table on high-rise buildings in the context of city densification
City densification : The road to more high-rise buildings
More and more people are moving into cities. This is a trend we see not only in Flanders, but internationally. What does this mean? That we will have to build more densely and therefore also construct more high-rise buildings.
What impact will the massive move to the city have? What challenges do our designers face? What role does urban densification have within our climate ambitions? Are our regulations adapted to these ambitions?
Luc Binst (BINST ARCHITECTS), Kurt Van Den Bergh (Reynaers Aluminium), Thijs Verfaillie (Bureau Bouwtechniek NV) and Sven Verbruggen (UAntwerpen) enter the discussion.
